Nobody knows yet...

..but I'm pretty sure we do know it's not going to be 2011.

2012 would be the earliest.

IMO...>There's no way they don't put the 6.4 L into a Jeep. With cars like the Mustang and Camaro, Corvette and Viper still in production, with more and more HP...Chrysler can't afford to just drop out of the race. Not to mention they already announced that the SRT Challenger with the 6.4 is already in the works.
Plus...The SRT Engineers hinted toward it.

Hey all

Still new here, but I can shed a little insight on this. I work for the ocean carrier that imports Chrylser, Saab, Volvo, Mercedes, BMW, Rolls, Jag, Land Rover etc (all new commercial units).

I was also in the market to buy a SRT in 2011 but several months ago, I was talking to one of the reps from Chrysler and because of the new GC11 models coming out, total revamp of the GC, adding the SRT was not in something they wanted to deal with. For one instance, the price of the SRT would have increased about 35-45,000. Most consumers would not buy a 85-95,000 Jeep SRT, unless of course you were a Prince from another country.
Secondly, Jeep is pushing the new models to show not only the consumer but the US Gov they the can in fact upgrade the models with less gas emmisions and keep it afforable for the public.
Third, launching the SRT with the new GC model would in fact down play all the new production teams ideas and set Chrysler back.

So if you are in the market for a SRT like I am and can hold a bit, the new models should (if all goes correctly) start showing up around mid 12 or so.

One a side note, there are still numerous dealers who have a large inventory of SRT's so when the new GC's come out and if you search hard enough you should be able to get a very good deal one.

that thing will look great.... could certainly see dropping an engine and some viper reps on one of these....

the jeep is in the background. shared platform, better aesthetics. SRT version or not, it's gonna get some 426....
